The Eve Tribune is the longest running independent news site for Eve Online and has, during its six years in existence, published over 200 issues containing over a thousand articles. We have written about every facet of Eve Online. From the new player experience to bitter vet grumblings, industrialist market crunching to an interceptor dogfighting guide. We're also willing to publish much less predictable pieces, like discussions about the philosophy of the souls in clones, original fiction and what food to cook for when you're out on a roam.

We are now looking for writers who want to join us and tell others about their corner of Eve. As a writer for the Eve Tribune you get the opportunity to publish articles to thousands of readers every week, and people will be able to read your articles for years to come. Although we don't require you to be the next Mark Twain, if you'd like to take advantage of it, you'll get the help and directions from our editorial staff so that you can workshop your pieces and refine them for publication. You will also be paid for every article in ISK. The going rate at the moment is 50m ISK/page for the first two written but there's also bonuses to be made for a good job, extensive fact checking, or just plain dull research.

You should be

  • Someone who enjoys writing, informing/entertaining/bitching at the unwashed masses and reporting.
  • You are free to write as much or as little as you please and have the time for.

Are you interested? Drop me a mail and tell me about yourself.

See you at the Tribune

LMAO. Touche.

As for the Op, The Tribune has gone downhill for a long time now. The latest issue was week 34, sadly. It used to be rather good, I remember reading the entire backlog once :) The Tribune used to have lots of guides and how-to articles, and news ofc.

But, alas, it has become hopelessly lagged behind other sites (EN24 especially). Even if you think EN24 is crap, the Tribune is presently even crappier. I used to check the Tribune every day. Now I barely check it once a month, usually to find nothing new. Litlle to no content, horrible graphics. It looks dead and dull. So to revivie it you will have to do much much better than just get a pair of new writers, although it is a start I'd admit.

Wishing You luck mate Blink

You appear to have gagged yourself. Do you require assistance or are you happy being silent? Big smile

More Tribune writes sounds like a great idea!
